Welcome to the new season. GSB has received applications for membership from two of our old Clubs. The Board and Host Club Representatives have voted to accept these two old friends back into the GSB circuit of shooting sites. Pelham Fish and Game Club along with Monadnock Rod and Gun Club are now listed as first year members and will be participating in this years shoot schedule. Speaking of the Shoot Schedule… January 26th shoot has been taken by Essex County SA. The remaining 2014 shoot calendar should be ready in the next few weeks. Keep an eye on this page for future announcements.
Here we are, ready to shoot our first event of 2014 and most of us are wrestling with snow to clear, stoves to stoke and decorations that are ready to be packed away. All things considered, this Sunday is looking like a good piece of weather and Brentwood is always an interesting winter shoot. Over the next few days, I’ll get the Forums cleaned out from last years traffic and be ready to post our first results. I’ve had several new users register with the site recently and look forward to seeing all our old friends and making new ones.
Chester put on a great shoot today, few repeat shots from previous setups and many very new targets throughout the course. This course will be a great practice run for those that will have the hunting gear in use when we return at the end of August.
Thank you for the effort you put into the field for GSB’s visit.
Thank you to White Mountain Traditional Bowhunters and all shooters who attended the Watanic Bowman Charity Archery Shoot on Father’s Day weekend. Special thanks to Hidden Valley Traditions, Wildlife Taxidermy, and Archer’s Paradise (big Al’s) for their donations to our raffle. Also let us not forget to thank the GSB Organization for allowing us to have this Charity Shoot date on Fathers Day weekend every year. Our combined efforts have made it possible to donate $700 to the St. James Community Food Pantry in Merrimack, NH
A footnote of behalf of the GSB Membership: Thank you to Watanic and our other member Clubs for your efforts and commitment to the Sport of 3D Archery and your local communities.
This is it! Take a look in the forums for our State Championship Shoot Announcement and finish your yard work Saturday, we expect a great turnout at Stateline this year. We also expect to be drawing the winning ticket from our first GSB Raffle, so if you haven’t picked up a ticket yet, time is running out! See you all there.
*Remember, if you have not filed a copy of the Release Agreement (opens in a new Window/Tab) that Stateline requires, you can download this one and have it filled out in advance.
Kudos to Westford! Excellent shoot! Great weather, nice course and very good targets. Thank you for having us at your facility.
New Hampshire Turkey Season opens this Friday, Westford is on the schedule for Sunday, weather is looking pretty good from here. Hoping all our members have the yard work caught up and a bird in the freezer come Saturday. Sunday should be a great day to get out. Haven’t seen many ticks myself but, they are out there, so keep your eyes open, your clothing treated and lets have a great time this weekend.
Thank you for the updates made to the course this past Sunday at Essex. The turnout looked quite good and I’m certain everyone appreciated the effort you made. We’ll see Essex again in May.
Finally got the schedule full and posted! Thank you to all that helped us with the empty dates and to everyone else for being patient with me. The Championship Shoot is only a few weeks off, better get yourself “in tune”!
No surprise to most of us, Clubs need to protect themselves and State Line is no different. They require that any person using the facilities, whether active or observer, MUST have one of these Release Agreements (opens in a new Window/Tab) on file. Please take a few minutes and print yours, fill it out and bring it with you this weekend as it will save time and confusion at the Clubhouse.
